    If I told you there would be a non-disclosure agreement to be signed.

    So sorry I’m no good to you.

    It’s not about money, it’s about how much you want to spend on your fun.

    PS, can you post details of the ski you’ve mentioned?

    I would say (happy to be shouted down) A$500 is pretty good for a good new ski.

    If they as good as or close to the Blizz Zero G95 then A$500 is very good.

    I've seen @Swede ski and would take his advice any day of the week.

    Noice, thanks guys for all the help. I I need something lighter - 4.2 kg skis too heavy for big days.

    @Swede how are they at speed ?

    They're good at speed and just checked my set and they're 4.3 kg but that is with a set of fairly heavy King pins on them.

    My bc skis are a lot lighter and have at least 100 days of skiing .
    generally ,the lighter the ski, the more input required to control them downhill in variable conditions.
    Volkl , Fischer and K2 have really nice light bc skis.
    My wife has the K2 Talkbacks in 84.
